NVIDIA plans to launch their C51 chipsets on Sep 15 but we do not expect reviews to come out until later this month or early next month. There seems to be some chipset problems at the moment and the motherboard manufacturers need to change the PCB layout so there aren’t many samples out there right now. There are two versions; C51G and C51PV and they will be known as GeForce 6100 and 6150 respectively when launched. Both C51G and C51PV are similar but the GPU core clock for C51PV is higher. There are two versions of MCP too; MCP51 and MCP51-Ultra to be officially known as nForce 430 and nForce 410. MCP51 is a lower end version without NV Firewall and has only two SATA ports.
